From the Union of Concerned Scientists (http://www.ucsusa.org):
We have an urgent opportunity to reduce the threat from nuclear weapons. The world has changed dramatically since the end of the Cold War. Today, as the threat of nuclear terrorism grows, these weapons are a terrible legacy that represent a U.S. security liability rather than an asset.
President Obama is about to make major decisions about why the United States still has nuclear weapons and how many we need. Please join us and sign a petition urging the president to move us closer to a world free of nuclear weapons at https://secure3.convio.net/ucs/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=3221&s_src=wac&s_subsrc=website.
In 2009, he pledged to “put an end to outdated Cold War thinking” and pursue dramatic steps that would make us safer from the threat of nuclear weapons. He hasn’t done it yet.
Tell him now is the time.
His choices will determine if we continue to live with the threat of nuclear materials falling into the wrong hands or move us closer to a world free from the threat of nuclear weapons.
To seize this opportunity, the Union of Concerned Scientists is coordinating with dozens of organizations across the country in a campaign to get concerned citizens like you to sign this petition.
